Hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico, LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT has managed to build one of the most die-hard fan-bases in the underground extreme scene completely “do-it yourself” with a sound all their own - a paradoxical paradigm shift in a world of monotonous metal. Sharing the stage with bands such as Vital Remains, Decapitated, Exhumed, All Shall Perish, Suffocation, Shadows Fall, Suicide Silence just to name a few. LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT has proved time and time again that they can hang with some of the biggest names in metal.
In late 2006, LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT inked a deal with SIEGE OF AMIDA RECORDS. shortly after the release of their EP “The Road Leads to Nowhere.” The self-produced and distributed album quickly sold out of all original copies without a single tour under their belt concluding that fans of true metal are still ravenous for gritty 70's horror flick themed music.
After writing and inevitably scratching nearly an entire album's worth of material, the band decided that for their debut album they needed to shift gears and crank up the intensity. In early 2007 they began pre-production for their new leviathan, “Among Flies” - an album consisting of 11 tracks, including matured versions of select old favorites from their EP. The album's title track is written as if to be an omitted chapter from William Golding's “The Lord of the Flies.” Traces of themes from the book are scattered throughout the remainder of the album as well. LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT was more than fortunate to formulate an all-star cast for “Among Flies” which features artwork by the legendary Simon Bisely (DC, Verotik, Marvel Comics), mixing by Grammy Award winning Neil Kernon (Nevermore, Cannibal Corpse, Judas Priest), and mastering done by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Nile, The Red Chord).
In the midst of pre-production for “Among Flies,” LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT received the invitation of a lifetime to open for the all-mighty DANZIG in a sold out hometown venue. Now, with “Among Flies” on the horizon, LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT plans on spreading in infestation across the land, restoring hope in contemporary metal to thousands around the world in the process. There is truly something for everyone on the album. LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT's sound cannot be pigeon-holed, it cannot be sub-classified, and it can simply only be described as “metal for the masses.”
Metal has always meant to be a counter-response to the safety of mainstream music, not revile in the gluttony of it; with LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, you won't find any tight pants, eyeliner or any filler, but simply five devoted musicians with nothing to prove but their love for dark, progressive, heavy metal, and their competency at creating it.
